Termites

It is estimated that a wooden structure has a 70% chance of being attacked by termites within 10 to 20 years. Termites are a problem that many Arizona property owners face at one time or another.

However, the good news is if you catch the infestation early, you have a higher likelihood to treat it quickly & easily – Prior to significant damage occurring. AJF’s Inspection Team can give you that peace of mind.

The AJF Edge in Termite Inspection

  • All of our Inspectors are licensed by the Dept. of Agriculture under the Office of Pest Management, and complete hours of continuing education each year.
  • Since AJF Inspections & Engineering performs a termite inspection at the same time as a home inspection, our inspectors are looking at areas of the home that a termite-only inspector would not access. The result is a more thorough inspection and buyer peace of mind.
  • AJF Inspectors have knowledge of construction, which is necessary to identify where termites are likely to live and enter the property.
  • Licensed Termite Inspectors can spot signs of termites not obvious to the untrained eye.
  • AJF Inspectors have the ability to generate on-site computer reports which can be emailed directly to the buyers and escrow companies.
  • FREE ONE YEAR WARRANTY on all clear termite reports through our partner, Strike Force Pest & Termite Control Inc.

AJF’s Department of Agriculture license # is 8473.

Radon

You cannot see, smell or taste radon, but it still may be a concern in your home

Radon is a radio active gas that has been found in homes all over the United States. It comes from the natural breakdown of uranium in soil, rock and water, and gets into the air we breathe.

  • Radon typically moves up through the ground to the air above then into your home through cracks and other holes in the foundation.
  • Any home can have a radon problem including new and old homes, well-sealed or drafty homes, and homes with or without basements.
  • Nearly one out of every 15 homes in the United States is estimated to have an elevated radon level (4pCi/L or more).
  • Radon is easily detected through a simple radon test.

Hire AJF Inspections & Engineering to conduct a short term radon screening test.

Mold

Homes that have had past or current water intrusion issues, may have mold. Certain types of mold, or high concentrations of mold, can be hazardous to your family’s health. Mold testing—and taking steps to combat its presence—can be an essential step in ensuring your new home is safe. This can be particularly important for the very young, the very old and people with allergies or other chronic conditions.

Thermal Imaging

A thermal imaging camera is used to measure the surface temperatures of walls & ceilings, electrical panels, etc. to identify adverse conditions that cannot be identified by a standard visual home inspection. Examples of conditions that can be identified are:

  • Missing insulation: Thermal image will show red hot spots in the summertime and blue cold spots during the winter time where the insulation is missing.
  • Roof and plumbing leaks: Thermal image will show a blue colder area where moisture is present.
  • Defects in the electrical panel due to overheated circuit breakers and bus bar; the thermal image will show red hot spots.
